Higher Education Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor. Like all feminists, she chews on slices of lemon first thing every morning, to set her “hatchet-faced trout” expression for the day.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Ms O’Connor will set out details of the extent of the Talent Initiative today when they launch the Gender Equality Action Plan for Higher Education Institutions.
Senior sources told the Irish Independent a legal challenge was “very likely”.
Mr Varadkar said the action plan was the starting point to accelerate gender equality.
“We can’t rely on others to change the status quo, we can’t just wait for things to change over time. We need accelerators,” he said.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1.00 – or even better, £1.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
